Elda Gulli Marble

August 15, 1926 — October 24, 2017

Elda (Gulli) Marble, 91, passed away of natural causes on October 24, 2017 at Pondera Medical Center Extended Care.

Elda was born on August 15, 1926 in Trieste, Italy, to Ferruccio and Anna Gulli.  Elda’s mother passed away when she was fourteen years old and her father was a soccer player that played and traveled internationally under various aliases, so Elda was raised by her grandmother.  Elda grew up during the rule of Mussolini. She attended schools in Trieste and went on to marry Eugene Marble while he was stationed in Trieste with the US Army.  Elda and Gene came to the United States with their first born, George, and eventually settled in Conrad.  They were married 61 years before Gene’s passing in June 2008.

Although not fluent in the English language when coming to the United States, Elda enjoyed crossword puzzles. This helped her learn the English language.  Elda was a homemaker along with helping Gene with his business, Marble’s Repair, for over 25 years.  Elda enjoyed spending summers at their property on Echo Lake.

Survivors include sons, George (Karen) Marble of Helena and Jerry Marble of Conrad; daughter, Doreen (Jim) King of Conrad; four grandchildren, Kenley (Brian) Chilcott, Calen King, Cody Marble, and Blaine Marble; and three great grandchildren, Kazden, Liam, and Prentiss Chilcott.

She is preceded in death by her husband; parents, Ferruccio and Anna Gulli, and daughter-in-law, Toni Ann Marble.

Thank you to Traci Woith and Pondera Medical Center Extended Care Staff for their wonderful care of Elda, and a thank you to Betty McBratney and Lyn Carlson for their friendship.

Cremation has taken place, and, at her request, no services are planned.
